If someone says Chevrolets are cheaper than Cadillacs, he's not bragging, just stating simple, obvious fact.
I don't agree with this. I have more shotguns than, well, Joe Biden. Some, all used, are easily valueable enough for a downpayment on a new car. I own two (2) semi-autos now, an H&K/Benelli and a Browning Sweet Sixteen -- neither is cheap even by auto-loading standards. I do not buy or use others because they simply are not as reliable or easy to maintain as, well, pretty much all other actions. Price has never been a factor to me.
Jan, Locutus is not criticizing you in any case, just expressing an opinion though perhaps in a way that one can understand you'd take umbradge with. And FYI, my Mossberg 20 ga. bolt-action is my favorite small-game shotgun...
